I need to process 4096 point FFT in less than 40us.
Real Data at 204.8 MSPS from a 14-Bit ADC is to be interpreted as 102.4 MSPS complex data. I need to Segregate and send alternate samples to real and complex FFT inputs I need to have Capability for Post FFT processing, frame integration desired, i.e., in brief "Streaming output with start of frame flag with Output data rate of 102.4 MSPS".
Computation of(a) 4096-pt complex FFT (b) |FFT|^2 (c) Average |FFT|^2 over N FFTs to be available.
Can anyone suggest a FPGA based solution? Are there eval board available to carry out the above experiment?
Thanks in advance.

Virtex5 or Virtex6 can easily handle it. You can either use FFT generator from Coregen and plug in your requirements to get resource estimation so you can choose a device. Or take a look at the "Performance and Resourse Usage" section of the FFT data sheet (http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/ip_documentation/xfft_ds260.pdf) to get some general ideas of you would get.
I would recommend you get a Virtex6 board and System Generator to play with your algorithm.

I have gone through the xfft_ds260.pdf document and found them to be very helpful.
In addition I need to develop a Bit-accurate Matlab model and HDL test-bench for simulation and validation.How do I go about writing the SW and setting up the hardware? Is there an integrated solution available from Xilinx?
Thanks in advance.

You may find System Generator very useful for your application. Please check the thread below for information about System Generator:

With respect to my requirement, I have narrowed down my search for hardware board to
XtremeDSP Development Kit – Virtex-5 SXT Edition $1,695.00
The info on this board says that System Generator SW and synthesis sw is included.
My question is :
is this the right choice of board for the above FFT application?
is ISE sw included if I buy the board?

As far as 4096 point FFT is concerned, the Virtex-5 XtremeDSP Development Kit will work. Regarding SW, I believe you will get the ISE SW tied to the device ((XC5VSX50FF1136) on the board. But don't quote me on that as I work in a different department. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions on the kit.

The XtremeDSP Development Kit – Virtex-5 SXT Edition Part Number:DO-V5-DSP-DK-SG-UNI-G contains Virtex-5 XC5VSX50T FPGA(XC5VSX50TFFG1136).
My question is:
xfft_ds260_Logicore.pdf describes the performance of Virtex 5 family FPGA, wherein a specific device, namely, XC5VSX95T, is quoted.It states, this device can compute 4k FFT in streamline architecture in 31us.
I would like to get a similar information on XC5VSX50T FPGA device.
Is this information available?Thanks in advance.
